I am using Airtable as the database backend for translations to an app I have built. Basically, ever column is a string for text that I then link to in the app.
While 500 columns is generous, it is limiting my freedom to design the app since there are more than 500 strings that need to be indexed in the app.
My ideal solution would be for there to be a paid solution that would allow me to go beyond 500 columns, but that doesn’t seem to exist.
Otherwise, my ideas are:
Use the 500 lines more efficiently. I have been doing this but am running out of low hanging fruit, 500 strings is not such a high limitation when you consider the amount of text in an app
Link Airtable databases together, where the user would select a Translation database 1 for the first 500 strings then a Translation database 2 for the next 500 strings, but this is a bit ugly for the users. I haven’t figured out a way to auto populate the second database of the selection of the first database, I feel like there has to be a way but I haven’t figured it out yet
Anybody have any advice? Would be appreciated!
